Lenses / Re: 50mm lens. I Need advice!!
« on: December 28, 2012, 09:17:48 PM »
I'm definitely a fan of the 50L if you like f/1.2 to f/2.  I've never seen better color rendition and sharpness at those wide of apertures.  Unfortunately I don't shoot at 50mm that wide, so I couldn't make use of the lens.  I like your photos!

I Love this Lens! the 50mm is perfect for what I shoot and the f/1.2 is just awesome!!

But I feel like my 7D is holding back the potential of the lens.

and thanks! I'm glad you like my pics. :) I've only been shooting for like a couple of months! lol

Lenses / Re: All street photographers share your gear here!
« on: August 28, 2012, 12:40:18 AM »
For street photography I use a Canon S5 IS from waist level. Nobody seems to notice it or care about it. If I feel more comfortable in the area I'm shooting, then  I use my Rebel XTi with the Jenna Zeiss 35mm or the 50mm Planar.
I don't want to use anything bigger because people gets defensive, sometimes aggressive and not cooperating at all :D

If you don't mind me asking how do you like your Zeiss 50mm? is it the f/1.4? would you recommend it over the Canon or Sigma f/1.4's?

I'm in the Market for a good 50mm and those three are my options.

The Zeiss looks awesome tho! love the all Metal Look of it.

After seeing some more  Street shots on the Canon 50mm f/1.4 I'm impressed of the Lens can do. This lens is gunna be mostly for Street and some portrait use.

I dunno what I'm gunna end up with theses 3 50mm f/1.4 lenses.

I found another 50mm f/1.4 that I'm very interested with. Has anybody have experience with the Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 lens?

Do you recommend it? How the image quality?

Is the Manual focus only Lens really make a big difference?

Just curious if it's worth the extra cost over the sigma or canon.

Thanks for all the comments and advices guys!!

I think I'm leaning towards the Sigma now. But I really want the f/1.2 50L too!! just not sure if its the right investment right now since its my first 50mm and first "aftermarket" lens.

The reason I choose the 50mm focal length as my first lens is because I like shooting street photography and I shoot quite a bit at that focal length.

If you're going Canon, you'll be much, much less disappointed with the 1.4 lens.  I NEVER miss with the 1.4, but the 1.2L is just too hit and miss.  I don't know why, but it is.

Still can't decide which one to choose!! Lol

I wus reading about the Canon 50mm f/1.4 somewhere last night and some people were saying that the Canon has a tighter field of view than the Sigma? Is it because it has a smaller glass or it's not an exact 50mm?

Sigma.  If you get a good copy, it's performance will fall between the Canon f/1.4 and f/1.2 but at a price much closer to the f/1.4.

I wouldn't be concerned about the Canon 50 f/1.4 replacement coming out anytime soon, and if it did, are you willing to spend around $800 for similar performance?  And if the new version does cost around 800, I'm pretty sure you'll get good resale for a sub-$400 lens once it is discontinued.

If I do decide to go with the Sigma how do I know that I have a good/bad copy?

Lenses / 50mm lens. I Need advice!!

Hey guys! thinking of getting a 50mm as my first "aftermarket" lens.

The Lenses I'm looking to pick up in about a month or so is the Canon 50mm f/1.4 or the Sigma 50mm f/1.4, or if its worth it I can wait and save a little bit more and get the Canon 50mm f/1.2 (MAYBE)

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 - I like the build quality and the size of the Sigma it feels sturdier compared to its canon counterpart and it doesn't look weird on my 7D. also the Sigma is a newer lens. The concerns I have about the Sigma is that some are having problem with the lens not working with the camera. also some focusing problems. and the lens I tried out on a local shop had a weird noise when focusing.

Canon 50mm f/1.4 - The build quality of the canon is not as sturdy as the sigma. if feels more plasticky and cheap. the Canon is almost half the size of the Sigma and it looks kinda weird on my 7D without the lens hood. but looks is not really a deciding factor for me. I know some of the canon 50mm f/1.4 have some focusing issues as well. the canon is almost silent compared to the Sigma when focusing. also the canon 50mm f/1.4 has been around for quite a while now I'm worried that if I do decide to pick up the canon a month or two later a version II comes out.

So which one should I get?

Makes the Camera and the lens look cheap IMHO.

I wus on the same situation as you a couple weeks ago.

I couldn't wait any longer for the MKII (if theres is one coming) so I decided to just pick up the 7D now.

Very happy with the Camera.

If you can wait what Canon releases in Photokina then wait. but if you can't, go ahead and pick the 7D now. you can't go wrong either way.

;D

I thinking of getting this lens on my 7D instead of the 24-105L or the EFS 17-55.

I'm no pro and just barely starting into Photography. I just want to take some nice and awesome shots.

What do u guys think? Is this worth the price or just spend a little extra $$$ for the canon version? The Version II is just way out of budget for me. Rather spend that kind of money on the 70-200 L f2.8 IS USM II. JMHO
